  1. Salam. This topic was posted a while ago. This is a paper I co wrote with Br. Basim Ali and Sis Bint Al Hoda (no longer active on the site). It was originally shared as a google doc. It is now shared with 253 people, I guess that's the max google will allow. I have placed in my google drive as a public document, so we no longer have the 'request access' limit. I will post this document periodically as people request access to it. I guess there is a lot of interest in this topic. Enjoy ? https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JDUJ0Oj3VhWSqoAULydoSPgb627bLNSsO4_KiyeTUGI/edit?usp=sharing

  3. Grand Ayatollah Mirza Shirazi 1882. Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammed Hassan Husayni Nouri Shirazi (Persian: میرزای شیرازی‎, Arabic: آية الله العظمى السيد محمد حسن الشیرازي) famously known as Mirza Shirazi (1814–1896), was a famous Iranian cleric. He is widely known for his verdict (misunderstood as a fatwa) against the usage of tobacco in what became known as the Tobacco Protest in the Qajar era. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirza_Mohammed_Hassan_Husseini_Shirazi

    If a mujtahid dont give fatwa

    Assalaamualeikom, I found my mujtahid taqleed do not have (or at least do not give) fatwa nor do give a precaution on particular matters in certain issue, meanwhile other a'lam mujtahid has a fatwa on that specific matter because he indeed has more fatwas on his risala. Here are the examples: 1. In my mujtahid risala, he does not mention if a mohr sticks to the forehead, one must put it back to the ground, or another saying that may indicate that specific act must or do not have to be done regarding to that matter, must I follow that verdict even if I am not in taqleed to the mujtahid that release that mohr fatwa in issue of ritual prayer? 2. Something are described as recommended acts (also in prayer) by other mujtahid, meanwhile my mujtahid taqleed has no mention to those things. Are those things is considered mustahabb for me? I need your advice, thanks a lot. Assalaamualeikom

    Mr.

    Salaam, as an ex-smoker I use a vape pen to satisfy my cravings, I was wondering if vaping whilst fasting would invalidate my fast? I've tried looking around for fatwas but I can find them regarding smoking, not vaping. Can anyone help me out? Jazakallah
  9. (Salam) I am follower of Ayatullah Ali Sistani (hz). I read his (hz) fatwas on net about Zanjeer Zani (Hitting one's back with Knives hanging with chains) that one should avoid this because if a non-muslim sees this he does not understand it. I intend to do Zanjeer Zani this year. I live in Lahore/Pakistan where majority is muslim and even during the procession `majorty is Shia`. My question is that if it is not declared absolute haram by Ayatullah Sistani (hz), then i will like doing this year.
  10. Salam, Can a person follow fatwas of two marji on same issue? Thanks!
  11. Salam, When a person follows a particular maraja, does he needs to follow the rulings of another maraja in any matter. For instance, i follow ayatollah sistani he gives a fatwa that a particular thing is allowed. But another maraja says it isn't haram but ihtiyat mustahib or ihtiyat wajib or lets say if it is haram. In that case what should a person do. There are dozens of maraja and its impossible to follow rulings of everyone,
  12. Asalamalekum, Is this the authentic email address english@alsistani.org to acquire fatwa from Ayatollah Sistani representatives. Because on their website it is written as english@sistani.org. At english@alsistani.org they ask me to send all email to them instead of getting a fatwa from najaf.org, also is there any way i can speak to someone in English or Urdu through telephone. Because getting touch with them through email is little confusing. I contacted the numbers on their website, but either they are arabic or persian. Regards.
  13. AsSalam aleykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, I am not sure if this question was asked previously since I am new here, but here is the question: Why a lot of modern muslims use term suchs as "slightly religious," " moderately religious" etc (not as something bad but rather to what extent, in their opinion, Islam should be practiced). We have a Prophet (saw) , Ahlu Bayt (a.s) and our Imams (a.s) and they all followed the same religion, in the same manner. So are we trying to say that they were (authubillah) fanatics and we should not strive to be like them? If not then why muslims are using these terms ? Or are we just covering our lack of ibada by giving it a "moderate" name not to feel too guilty? WasSalam
  14. (BISMILLAH) (Salam) So, I came across this article recently, in which Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi has some sort of fatwa against faster internet in Iran: http://www.iranhumanrights.org/2014/08/makarem-internet/ Isn't this a bit too extreme? I mean, it's like opposing the invention of printing just because it can be used to create fashion magazines. Now, I understand that, maybe, what he is saying is that the internet, in general, is unlawful until it has been strictly filtered for Haraam content by the religious institutions. Any care to explain what seems to obviously be too "Wahabi" a fatwa coming from this very famous jurist?
  15. ****He does not mean Ahlul Sunnah is the enemy as a whole, but those who hide behind it (ISIS and like), extremists, killing and slaughtering all, women and children, destroying shrines and mosques, taking over cities.
  16. A wr wb Considering the current scenario,we need a fatwa that prohibits birthday parties at home or a hotel or at beach.Since the behaviour in such parties is void of Islamic belief,these need to be strictly prohibited to stop the Muslims from ruining further .Atleast the authority be called competent enough to handle situations like these and alert to the happenings in different places amongst Muslims.
  17. I am trying to understand and I love to learn about Islam. To many people, many of the fatwas that are announced in the media seem to orchestrate a safety issue - maybe even a global safety issue. Now Wikipedia defines fatwa simply as an opinion. I read that a Muslim – (forgot his name and everything else) – said something to the affect that it was ok to rape woman in some place. This was a fatwa. I want to be respectful, but find It hard to select the appropriate words about this person. So a question is what can we say about this fatwa? Clearly raping a woman is disgusting, no matter situation and circumstance, and anybody that does disgust them selves. Is a fatwa like described above not a severe sin against God? Does it not dishonor Islam? If a fatwa is an interpretation of the law in the Qur'an, than this fatwa is claming that you can rape according to the Qur'an ??? What ?? All of this makes me sad and confused. I hope someone can help me understand this.
  18. Takfiri Deobandi Taliban Officially Declared Outcast by Consensus Fatwa of Sunni Ulema In a major and bold statement today, main stream Sunni muslim scholars issue a religious decree against Takfiris yesterday in Pakistan, calling them Kharjites (out-cast) of modern era. (Ahlul Bayt News Agency) -In a major and bold statement today, main stream Sunni muslim scholars issue a religious decree against Takfiris yesterday in Pakistan, calling them Kharjites (out-cast) of modern era. The clarity of words in the decree show the intent is quite clear. Main stream sunni ulema used to condemn takfiris in past and as a result many of them being killed by takfiris in Pakistan.It is interesting stats that post creation of Pakistan, 1947, Deobandi (Wahabi/Takfiri) sect was only 4% of Pakistan population where vast majority follow Barelvi (Hanafi) tradition or Sufism. The Wahabbism took root in Pakistan in 1980′s era when US backed ‘jihad’ started in neighboring Afghanistan and Saudis came in to Pakistan to spread Wahabbism to generate human resources to support it. Ever since then Wahabism is part of Pakistan ruling establishment and with government support and Saudi money it is considered to have spread up to 10% of Pakistani population with majority still following Sunni Barelvi. Remember Kharjites formed in early Islamic history and raises in Imam Ali(a.s.) era sticking to wrong interpretation of Islam and declaring every other person infidel, including Imam Ali (a.s) (naouzbillah). They assassinated Imam Ali (a.s) and were also part of Yazeed (L.A) army in Karbala. Imam Ali (a.s) declared them infidel and did jihad against them.http://abna.co/data.asp?lang=3&id=436792 The consensus Fatwa issued by fifty Ulema of SIC termed the crushing of those resorting to an armed revolt against a Muslim state as mandatory on part of the government. “The Pakistani Taliban who declare the killings of Muslims as legitimate are actually the outcasts of the present era,” the statement said. The statement further said that murder is the next big sin after Shirk (having faith in more than one God). “Attacking mosques, Mazars, hospitals, funerals, educational institutions, markets and security forces is not Jihad but chaos. Those who shed the blood of girl students, foreign mountaineers and innocent human beings are defectors of Islam and rebels of Pakistan,” it declared. It said extending cooperation to the government for a Jihad against terrorists is a duty of every citizen. “The right place for waging a Jihad against the US is Afghanistan and not Pakistan,” it added. The Fatwa declared the drone strikes as violation of international laws and atrocity on part of the US. http://abna.co/data.asp?lang=3&Id=436370
  19. (bismillah) Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh I have not writen on this forum for a while . but i came across this dcree "Fatwa" by then the Sharif if Mecca his emmenance Al-Husayn Ibn 'Ali , which came about during the Armenian Genocide of 1915 by then the Ottoman Turks . This reafirms my love for the shia and true muslim belife of love for humanity and the protector of the oppressed just like our blessed Hussein (peace be upon him and his family ) the guradian of all who are opressed . can any religious leaders refrim this fatwa and if it still stands today , and what place Armenian Apostolic christians hold in the house of Mohammed (peace be upon him ). Thank you [Decree issued in 1917 by the Sharif of Mecca for the Protection of Armenians.] The Hashemite Royal Court In the Name of God, The Compassionate, The Merciful We Thank Only God And No One But God From Al-Husayn Ibn 'Ali, King of the Arab Lands and Sharif of Mecca and its Prince to The Honorable and Admirable Princes — Prince Faisal and Prince Abd al-'Aziz al-Jarba — greetings and the compassion of God and His blessings. This letter is written from Imm Al-Qura (Mecca), on 18 Rajab 1336 [A.D. 1917], by the praise of God and no God except Him. We ask peace upon God's Prophet, his family and his companions (may peace be upon him). We inform you that in our gratitude to Him we are in good health, strength and good grace. We pray God that He may grant us and you His abundant grace. What is requested of you is to protect and to take good care of everyone from the Jacobite Armenian community living in your territories and frontiers and among your tribes; to help them in all of their affairs and defend them as you would defend yourselves, your properties and children, and provide everything they might need whether they are settled or moving from place to place, because they are the Protected People of the Muslims (Ahl Dimmat al-Muslimin) — about whom the Prophet Muhammad (may God grant him His blessings and peace) said: "Whosoever takes from them even a rope, I will be his adversary on the day of Judgment." This is among the most important things we require of you to do and expect you to accomplish, in view of your noble character and determination. May God be our and your guardian and provide you with His success. Peace be upon you with the mercy of God and His blessings. Al-Husayn Ibn 'Ali
  20. (salam) I am acquainted with a few idiotic fatwas over the years, but the new ones from Egypt are absolutely nuts...and extremely poor political judgement. According to the news this Friday (008Feb13), "hardline clerics" in Egypt have issued fatwas to their followers to kill christians' and secularists' leaders. Now if that ain't some dumbed-assed way to start a civil war. So let us have three cheers for the wackos :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:
  21. (salam) Ibn Munzar quotes from Qasim ibn Muhammad that he said: “some people asked Muawiyah about two sisters who are bondwomen of a person and he goes to bed with both of them. Muawiyah said that: "áíÓ ÈÐÇᘠÈÇÓ" “There is no problem” Nu’man ibn Bashir heard this and asked Muawiyah that: “Did you issue this fatwa?” He said that: “Yes”, Nu’man said that: “So, you think if his sister becomes his bondwoman, it will be allowable to go to bed with her!” Muawiyah said that: [1]"ÇäãÇ ÇãÇ æ Çááå áÑÈãÇ æ ÏÏÊäí ÇÏј¡ ÝÞá áåã: ÇÌÊäÈæÇ Ðᘡ ÝÇäå áÇ íäÈÛí áå㺠ÝÞÇá: [åí] ÇáÑÍã ãä ÇáÚÊÇÞå æ ÛíÑåÇ" “I swear to Allah that I would wish to know this matter, tell them not to do this act which is not allowable. Then, he said: surely relationship is relationship, and there is no difference between freedom and slavery (it means that as it is not allowable for free men to get married with two sisters at the same time, it is not allowable for Mowla (lord) to go to bed with two bondwomen sisters).[2] [1] - al- Dur al- Manthur, vol. 2, p. 137 and vol. 2, p. 477.

  22. The last time I laughed so hard for 10 mins when I listened to the fatwa of Saudi Sheikh on soccer games' rules and regulation! Now listen to this! LOL _________________ Abdallah Al-Khilaf: First, we'd like to show you a fatwa, which appeared on the Lions of Sunna Internet forum. One Wahhabi wrote: "Dear Sheik, may Allah grant you martyrdom and black-eyed virgins in Paradise, I wanted to commit a martyrdom operation. I turned to Sheik Abu Dimaa Al-Qassab, who told me that they had invented a new and unprecedented form of martyrdom operations – explosive capsules are inserted into your anus. "In order to train for this method of Jihad, you must consent to being sodomized for a period of time, so that your anus becomes wider, making room for the explosives. "My question is whether I am permitted to allow one of the mujahideen access to my anus, if my intentions are honorable, and the purpose is to train for Jihad by widening my anus." The sheik praised Allah and said: "In principle, sodomy is forbidden. However, Jihad is more important. It is the pinnacle of Islam. If sodomy is the only way to reach this pinnacle of Islam, then there is no harm in it. "The rule is that necessity makes the forbidden permissible. Something that is required in order to perform a duty becomes a duty in and of itself. No duty takes precedence over Jihad. "Therefore, you must be sodomized... After you have been sodomized, you must ask Allah for forgiveness. "Know, my son, that Allah resurrects the mujahideen on Judgment Day on the basis of their intentions. Allah willing, your intention is to support Islam. May Allah include you among those who heed His call." This is the fatwa that led a man a while ago to carry out a bombing attack against then Interior Minister Naif bin Abd Al-Aziz
  23. Is it a good time for Pakistan to leave the ranks of puppets (Saudi, Bahrain, Emirates etc..) and join countries like Iran and Turkey or after it's invaded and its nuclear arsenals looted? Act more independent and less harmful to its neighborhoods and Muslim countries? The sooner, the better~~~~~~~~~! Once invaded, the entire puppet circles will stand by the masters, not the fellow ex-puppet. Pakistani Threat Escalates as Imams Call for Jihad The United States' strained relationship with Pakistan has grown more tense after 50 influential imams and religious leaders there threatened a jihad if the U.S. attacks the nuclear-armed country. The threat came as Pakistan seemed to speak from both sides of the mouth. Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar insisted to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday that the government is part of the solution in Afghanistan. "Pakistan is willing to do its best with the international partners and, most notably, the governments of Afghanistan and the United States, to acquit itself of this high responsibility (in Afghanistan)," she told the 193-nation assembly. But her remarks came after Pakistan warned the United States to stop accusing it of playing a double game with Islamist militants and as it showered praise on China. Now the U.S. must deal with the threat of a jihad that security analysts warn would create serious problems for the U.S. as it tries to end violence originating in Pakistan -- and the Pakistani government can't be trusted, even if there's no alternative. The religious leaders threatening jihad are associated with the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC), a coalition of local groups. According to Pakistani news reports, the council issued a press release declaring that it is illegitimate to call the U.S. a superpower because only Allah deserves the title. The scholars urged the Pakistani government to end the country’s role in the war on terrorism and to try to establish a new international bloc made up of China, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. An analyst told FoxNews.com that the threat should be taken seriously. “This must not be discounted,” the analyst said. “This is 50 very influential Imams and religious leaders who want a holy war against the U.S. …and they call for scholars, religious leaders to start urging the military rank-and-file to participate or prepare for jihad or holy war against the U.S. Use of Trojan horses or insiders like we have seen with the CIA will likely increase. “ Walid Phares, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and an expert on Middle East history, told Fox News that the call by so many clerics is unusual, which means that a significant political force is behind this open call. He said that the fatwa is linked to attacks on Pakistan, which could mean that figures in intelligence circles could be behind it, too. He noted that it comes as jihadi and Taliban attacks are escalating, which could show coordination between cells on the ground and clerics. Last week, Adm. Mike Mullen, the outgoing chairman of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, linked the Haqqani network, the most violent faction among Taliban militants in Afghanistan, to Pakistan. “The Haqqani network, for one, acts as a veritable arm of Pakistan’s internal services intelligence agency,” Mullen said. Pakistan officials have pushed back at allegations their intelligence service was behind the June attack on Intercontinental Hotel and, three months later, the U.S. Embassy in Kabul. U.S. defense officials, however, told Fox News they found the cell phones of the Haqqani network attackers who kept the Embassy under siege for 20 hours, and those phones showed the attackers were connected to the ISI. The U.S government has stopped short of calling these incidents acts of war but the State Department is considering whether to list the Haqqani network on its terror list. “Obviously, if the Pakistani government chooses not to take action, we would carefully have to consider how to proceed,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said. “But it is in our strong interest, we believe, and it is in Pakistan’s strong interest, and we will be most effective, if we can tackle this problem together.” Instead, Pakistani officials invited the Chinese public security minister to Islamabad, sending a message to Washington that if the U.S. pulls back and cuts off aid, estimated at $5 billion a year, others will fill the vacuum. Khar said that current tensions between Pakistan and its partners stemmed in part from the challenges they are all facing in their fight against terrorism. "Given the volatility of the situation, it is perhaps understandable that there is a high level of anxiety and emotions," she said. "But we must not lose sight of the goals," Khar added. "We must work closely and as responsible partners in a cooperative manner and not rush to judgments or question each other's intentions." FoxNews
  24. (salam) I have few question from Akhbaris. As Akhbaris claim that there is no need of Taqleed of a Mujtahid in Islam and one can recourse to Quran and Hadiths of Prophet (pbuh) and Ahl ul bait a.s for knowing about any verdict on a issue. Therefore, i want to know what is Akhbari reply on the basis of Quran and sayings of Ahl ul bait a.s in the following Issues. 1. Is heart transplant or liver transplant allowed or not? Please provide Quranic reference or reference from hadiths of Prophet (pbuh) and Ahl ul bait a.s. 2. What is the ruling for a person who forgot to offer Tashud in prayer. As taqleed is not allowed please provide direct reference from Quran and sayings of Prophet (pbuh) and Ahl ul bait a.s. 3. If you have answer from Quran and sayings of Ahl ul bait a.s regarding the aforementioned issues and you paste them here with relevant references (as i do not have direct access to so many books and i have not specialized in Islamic knowledge) and i accept this then will it not mean that I have literally followed you though you have just informed me about hadiths and Quranic verses regarding the matter in question. Will it not mean that you have taught me and I did your "Taqleed" in this issue? I shall put more questions as the thread will proceed. Looking forward for the response of those who are against Ijtehad and Taqleed and Pseudo-Akhbaris.
